Two for one special here guys! Sierra and I both were fortunate to test for Greenstyle Creations’ newest pattern, the Chelsea pants! Thats not all! We are also participating in the Chelsea Pants Blog Tour! Keep reading for the give away! The Chelsea pants are a fitted pair with a big flare. Its Fall Y’all, this means we need to get workingon our fall wardrobe and these pants are just in time. These pants are insanely comfortable and yet they can be casual, dressy, fun and wild.

Sierra was born in the late 80’s and myself in the early 90’s so, back in our day bell bottoms were a thing of the past and it was about the flare(which is a smaller bell bottom) and then bootcut! Haha. Now I’m a short chick, a whole 5 nothing and, Sierra isn’t much taller 😜 but if you ask me, with the guidance from Greenstyles designer Angelyn, we rocked them!5logo

(Check out that cute baby, even she wants a pair!)

For this pattern, you will need a “stable” knit. Think Ponte, Scuba, Stretch Denim etc. Fabric that has AT LEAST 25%, 2 way stretch for most knit fabrics and 35% for stretch denim or other stretch woven fabrics. For Sierra, This was the first using stretch denim. This was my first time with Ponte.

Sierra here guys! So you guys need a pair of Chelsea pants in denim. Seriously the most comfortable jeans I have now. I Love that the designers show you how to get the perfect fit. They do this by adjusting that flare to YOUR height. If you plan on wearing heels you may want to add that to your height. As you can tell they are a little short for these wedges but they are perfect for flats.

There are 3 different rise options for the waistband. That’s right,3! During testing, I tried all 3. Hehehe. My favorite is the mid rise. I found it the most comfortable rise. There is also the optional back pockets, they have a unique and flattering shape to them too. I have never sewn a pair of pants like these and now I’m hooked! I definitely recommend you use a muslin to get the perfect fit and for you. This way you don’t waste all your pretties.
